Default How to add space between table row and footer

The file is landscape. The table with a single row is set to break across
pages, and the footer size cannot be changed. The problem is that the footer
is too close to where the table breaks at the bottom of each page. Changing
the page layout doesn't help. Resizing the table adjusts it left to right but
not top to bottom. Adding space to the row "options" (between the row text
and the border) doesn't help since it's one large row that breaks across many
pages. The client does not want the text broken into multiple rows. The only
other option I see is to add manual line breaks and choose where the text
breaks on each page, but this is time consuming. Any other suggestions?
Thanks so much!

Default How to add space between table row and footer

Have you tried increasing the Bottom margin (File Page Setup Margins
tab)? This will not move the footer text but it will force the table to break
earlier.

If the table does not fill all pages in the document, you can restrict the
bottom margin change to the pages that contain the table: Insert section
breaks before and after the table and apply the bottom margin change to the
table section only (in the Page Setup dialog box, make sure to select "This
section" in the "Apply to" field).

As Lene suggests, it sounds as if you need more space between the bottom
margin and the footer margin. Keep in mind that a header or footer that is
deeper than the space between the header/footer margin and the top/bottom
margin will push down/up into the document body. If you don't want to change
the bottom margin, you can still create some "breathing room" by adding
Space Before to the header paragraph.

That worked. Thanks so much. (I thought it messed up the page when I tried it
earlier, but it seems to be cooperating.) Thanks again!
